The 35-year-old made history last weekend when he clinched a seventh World Championship, making him the most successful driver in history as he equaled Michael Schumacher’s record. The Formula One superstar, who is the only Black driver in the sport, has been a major supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement and recently launched The Hamilton Commission to improve diversity in UK motorsport, the Mirror reported.
